Children’s fairy tales

Classic fairy tales still have the power to delight and entertain. Introduce children to some of the best known stories in the world with Ladybird First Favourite Tales, which include Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Hansel and Gretel. For older children, share Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales or Grimm’s Fairytales, both available in beautiful clothbound hardback editions as part of the Puffin Clothbound Classics collection. For a taste of magic and adventure, direct children to Roger Lancelyn Green’s King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table.
